Mozilla's Firefox Can Send Large, Encrypted Files via Email

14 March 2019, 06:24 | Casey Mitchell

Mozilla launches Firefox Send, a free self-destructing file-sharing service

Firefox Send lets you share 1GB files with no strings attached

Those that wish to send files up to 1GB in size can do so without registering, while those that have files up to 2.5GB in size, will need to create a free Firefox account before proceeding. For example, you can choose when your file link expires, the number of downloads, and enable an optional password.

The full version of Firefox Send, which does not require Firefox to use, has the same 1GB file size limit as its predecessor for unregistered users accessing the service anonymously; those willing to register for a free Firefox account, meanwhile, have this limit increased to 2.5GB.

If you're on the receiving end of Send, the process will be equally simple: you'll get a link to download the file without the need for a Firefox account, and that's it.

Files that are sent using Send are end-to-end encrypted which means your data is secure from the moment you send it to the moment it's opened.

Best Actor Rami Malek poses with his award backstage. "I think Live Aid [where Rhapsody leaves off] is a good point to leave it". The Live Aid concert was in 1985 and Mercury died in 1991 due to complications from AIDS.

There are plenty of file-sending services out there. Still, Send shouldn't be trusted with the most sensitive types of data, such as files that might land a dissident or whistleblower in prison.

Securely sharing large files can be annoying, but Mozilla wants to make it easier.

Users' files are first encrypted in the browser and then stored in the cloud, so Mozilla will have to pay for both the bandwidth and the storage of those files. This concept is in vogue right now; Snapchat-like impermanence was also mentioned by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg as a core tenet for privacy and security in that company's stated future plans. Mozilla today also announced the launch of Firefox Send beta for Android devices. "Since nothing lingers in the cloud, your personal information stays private", Mozilla said in an Firefox Send explanatory video.
